I've been using this years. I like it by it's self or even over a light coat of liquid foundation. I have very dry skin and the last time I went MAC the lady tried to get me to not buy this product. Well it looks great on my skin. IDKW but once it sets in my skin after a few minutes the powder look just goes away. It's super soft and I just love love this Foundation Powder so much. I use my MAC 182 brush to buff it in. Also I've never had break outs from this product and I have acne prone skin.
Why did it take so long for me to find this stuff!? AMAZING!
I've been wanting to try MAC ever since I got really into the whole *make up* thing, but the price just wasn't meeting my budget. So, for my birthday (which is this weekend) my boyfriend took me to the mall on Sunday and payed for me to get this stuff (I Love the guy!) So I have now been sucked into the world of Mac! I adore this stuff. It's not too heavy and it's great for people with oily skin like me. I've noticed others have talked about it making their skin more oily through the day..I haven't had this problem at all. Yesterday I had this stuff on for about 9 hours with no touch ups and I was still pretty matte and it still looked almost perfect when I took it off last night after a long work day! Usually I have to put on primer, liquid foundation, concealer and finishing powder and have to touch up with more powder throughout the day. All I have to do now is a primer, a few spot treatments with concealer on the bad spots, and I put on a tiny bit of finishing powder once my whole face is done..and NO touch ups through the day. I'm completely won over by this product and I have a feeling I'll be making a few more trips back to MAC at some point (goodbye bank account..lol)
haven't had it long, but
i really love this powder. im trying to move out of buying things from mac because they're pricey but i haven't tried anything quite like this. it gives light coverage, enough to cover my acne scars and a bit of redness as well. i love pairing it with concealer in the summer but i think i'll find use for it in the winter months as well. a really nice buy and worth the price. it never cakes up on me, either!
